Just wondering if we all pooled our resources (well YOU guys, as I'm in search of the info) and made this thread where we could list all things that are unique to the JDM Alpha model ?

Pictures would be preferred, but I'd just like to know what the differences were.

thanks in advance
Do you want Alpha or Alpha Touring as they are 2 diff. models?

Sounds like it would be more beneficial if we were to do both.
ok let me thumb my alpha owners manual and i'll see what i can come up with. i know that the alpha touring is just the gs and the alpha is a upgrade but now fancy grille or gauge cluster.

Why would the Alpha have more standard options than the Alpha Touring? Were they going for a light weight sport thing? Why does the Alpha II have the least amount of standard options?

Do they even have Base, L, LS, & GS in Japan?

Hey Lee how have you been? the alpha touring is only a GS and i use to think that the at was better then the alpha but my sources say and even kazuu said the Alpha is the top of the line modle but alpha 2 and so on are down grades it dont make since to me but thats just how they did it. well i use to think the Bata was the base modle but its above the base and stand legends but it has cloth but alot of up grade.
The GS is alpha touring ka7 and alpha touring coupes are ls the bata would be l with a sun roof but up graded stereo and the SE is called the Grand Stage it has the alpha touring grille and gage but cloth and no folding mirriors.
